    Wondering what age ip2 will be when its no longer operable?

    Three years is the typical life cycle off an apple item, however they can continue to operate much longer. For instance someone I know just now finally replaced their iPhone 2g but only because they broke the screen . A co-worker is using an old iPod from 2006. My original iPad is still being...

    Heads up for potential iPad 3 (4G) buyers from Australia

    Yeah, it's advertised on apples iPad site. Excerpt: "4G LTE is supported only on AT&T and Verizon networks in the U.S. and on Bell, Rogers, and Telus networks in Canada. Data plans sold separately. See your carrier for details." I'm not sure why apple didn't include other LTE bands.....not...

    Pay-as-you-go carrier for iPad in US

    I was afraid of this. Oh well. I guess if I really need it I can activate ATT on the fly, and cancel the account so it doesnt auto renew

    iPad 2 Locked in Portrait Mode....

    Yeah it would get stuck in portrait or land scape. A reboot would usually clear it. Have you tried killing all of the apps running in the background? I had a game (can't remember which) that would lock my iPad in landscape; even when the app was in the background. I would have to close it to...

    Pay-as-you-go carrier for iPad in US

    My iPad isn't locked to ATT. I've already tried another sim and it worked. T-Mobile sells plans, but it's like ATT, Pre-Paid for a certain interval. Within the US, I am more likely to be tied to my Wifi Network, however, I would like a 3G subscription service that lets me pay for what I use...

    Pay-as-you-go carrier for iPad in US

    Hi all. I just purchased a iPad 2 with 3G (att), and I am seriously considering adding AT&T services, however I am rather doubtful I can use 2gb in one month (I use it at home with wifi 99% of the time), and I have a hard time opting in for the 250mb plan because of its rather low value (cost...

    My SIM looks a little different.. will it work in iPad?

    I just cut one down like that for a German company. It didn't match my tMobile sim. After I cut it, it worked just great.

    why syncing ipad is taking too long time

    Do you have any apps installed that may have filed manually dropped into it? Like a third party video player.

    iPad 2's Water Resistance, Any Whatsoever?

    I use mine in the shower and occasionally go swimming with it. No negative issues at all. Only issue is that the screen gets kind of blurry from all of the water that leaks between the LCD screen and the Capacitive glass.... sometimes it takes DAYS for it to dry out and start working normal on...

    iPad2 US vs. iPad2 EU

    The other problem you will run into is that the US keyboard has a "zee" on it rather than a "zed"

    Frozen orientation

    What version of iOS are you running? This was a reported glitch with 4.3, that was subsequently addressed in 4.3.1 I had it happen too, until I updated.

    Movies.....Airstash Question

    oPlayer and AirPlayer also have good streaming options. oPlayer in particular offer a FTP capability, that allow you to FTP into your media server and copy movies directly to your iPad. I am still a fan for H.264 Rips. With Handbrake, you can queue up all of your other formatted movies, and...

    Why not use handbrake; easily and freely convert them to h.264 format. No cost solution.

    Syncing interrupted

    No, but iTunes may verify the items on your iPad, before it's next sync. Next sync may be a little longer. I've done it a few times.

    A Battery Question

    It's a lithium ion battery; that full charge rule applies to older nickel based batteries. Nickel based batteries needed this because nickel is a "memory" metal that needed full charge and discharge cycles for it to remember it's capacity. Lithium based batteries are "smart". They have...

    Very disappointed

    The problem is not likely with the app. The app works as designed. Your issue is likely with the publishers; there is a lot of content on YouTube (that I've come anyway) that isn't allowed to play on mobile devices. For music videos, your more likely to find what you want on...

    Screen protector preference?

    Honestly, I've had some of the higher end screen protectors (ghost armor), and the cheap amazon protectors on various electronic devices. For my iPad 2 I went with a cheap one peddled on Amazon. Install was easy, keeps the screen protected, and I can't tell that it's there.

    Best media player for iPad 2

    I'm going to say the Native video player, and only for one reason. It's the only one that hardware decodes the videos. All other video players software decode, which can lead to some playback issues (choppy). Additionally I experienced some stupid long backup times, because Itunes was...

    IPad For Contractor?

    Not sure how he would use it, but this would give it a good chance at surviving a work environment: iPad 2 Cases, iPad 2 Defender Series Case // My buddy also works in a fairly rugged environment. He was breaking phones all the time, till he started buying otter boxes.

    Anyone know a way to copy files from the ipad to a new itunes lib?

    I did this recently. I created a backup of my old iTunes library, restored it on the new computer. I deleted my synch history from the old computer, and I was good to go.

    Picked up Blackberry Playbook to compare with my ipad 2.....Fail!

    Op, you are fickle. As far as returns go........ If the store allows it I'm not sure how you can fault the op. If it was really a problem, the retailer would adjust their return policy.
